Well, things are starting to settle down and we can take a look at things.
This was the dirtiest campaign I have ever seen. It had everything in it and Trump was the underdog.
He had everything going against him.
The GOP elites hated him, meaning his own party was out to get him. Many of his own party members were Big money is afraid of him, the media was afraid of him. Congress was (and probably still is) terrified of him. Needless to say, the Democrats dispised him.
He was underfinanced, going up against an opponent with two or three times the money he had to work with. His oponent had an incredible political machine and a lifetime of political saavy. He had none but what he had acquired being a successful businessman.
When the media started shunning him his followers started an incredible grassroots campaign on the internet, spreading the word as the media ignored Wikileaks and Veritas videos came out. They spread the word as best they could. The took to the social madia and lit up Facebook pages.
When the oposition decided to play dirty and set him up with false allegations he instantly refuted them and retaliated in kind. As one guy put it, when she threw a shovelful of shit at him he just got a bigger shovel and threw it back.
I watched him evolve from a clumsy, casual speaker at his early rallies to evolving into an excellent presidential acting speechmaker.
All the time he never stopped being Donald. As people became aware, the rallies grew to epic proportions. There was seldom enough room at his rallies to let everyone in. He campaigned at a grass roots level, flying all over the country making as many as five rallies a day.
The man is over 70 years old and showed boundless energy. He was amazing.
Between his rallies, his speeches, and the frantic grassroots level internet help from countless little guys at their keyboardshe galvanized an awful lot of people to get off their asses and vote. I personally heard several people about my age saying they were going to register and vote for the first time.
It came to a head on election day and he fooled everyone. He won. The meltdown at Democratic headquarters was a sight to behold as many of them burst into tears at the news that he had beaten the overconfident Hillary.
It is still an amazing feat and it turned the world upside down.
